Welcome autumn's arrival warmly with this colorful DIY yarn wreath in beautiful fall colors.
- 12-in. wide Styrofoam wreath base
- Chunky, variegated yarn in fall colors
- Rust and tan colored felt sheets
- Ultra suede or wool, 2-in. square for each acorn
- Natural acorn caps
- Floral wire
- Craft glue
- Craft pins
- Needle and thread
- Print the oak leaf pattern and set aside.
- Pin one end of the yarn to the back of the wreath. Wrap the yarn around the wreath making sure the yarn covers the wreath completely as you go. When wreath is covered, pin the other end to the back of the wreath. Add a dab of glue for additional hold. (You may find this easier if you wrap your skein of yarn into a ball before you start.)
- Using the oak leaf pattern cut 2 oak leaves from the tan felt and 2 from the rust felt.
- Cut four 2-1/2-in. lengths of floral wire. Glue a length of wire to the back of each leaf. Let dry completely.
- For the acorns, cut a 2-in. wide circle from an ultra suede or wool square. Stitch a running stitch around the edge of the circle. Place a small piece of fiberfill in the center of the circle, and pull the thread to gather. Knot the thread to secure. Glue the fabric nut into the acorn cap. Repeat process until you’ve made desired number of acorns.
- Cut two 1-in. strips of felt and then cut the ends on a diagonal. Pin and glue to the bottom center of the wreath.
- Carefully bend the leaf wires to shape the leaves. Glue and pin the leaves over the top of the ribbons. Refer to photo for the placement.
- Glue acorns to the centers of the leaves. Then glue and pin a loop of felt to the top back center for a hanger.
